Maison agréable et très bien située à quelques mètres de la vieille ville et du port. La chambre est très jolie. Notre hôte a était parfait. Disponible et de bons conseils.
L'électroménager est complet et suffisant pour un séjour d'une ou deux semaines. Le linge aussi est plus que suffisant. Nombreuses serviettes de bain, draps ...
Je recommande fortement.

De verhuurders waren heel behulpzaam om bijvoorbeeld taxi of huurauto te regelen.
Het huisje was in orde en vrij rustig gelegen, maar toch in de oude stad van Rhodos.

Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Maria et sa famille. La maison est très sympathique, bien décorée et très bien située dans la vieille ville de Rhodes. Maria nous a très bien conseillé pour nos différents besoins. Nous n'avons eu aucun problème. Adresse à recommander!

The house was easy to find via a taxi from the airport, and we were met at the door just as we arrived. It is just as wonderful as the pictures, was clean, had everything we needed, and was very comfortable. The location was great for exploring the old town and is within a few minutes walk of the ferry port.
My hosts, Maria and Nikitas made us feel very welcome, they helped us locate the house which was in a very authentic neighbourhood and the history of the building was astounding. It has been standing for over 600 years! They recommended a great, reasonable restaurant outside the city walls that was delicious. The accomodations were as advertised and my kids enjoyed sleeping in a "castle". My only recommendations for the owners would be to improve the kitchen, but a quick trip to Ikea could easily turn that around.

Our experience was good in Rhodes! Our hosts helped us with a cheap taxi and gave us recommendations for dining. Old town itself is nice but certainly a tourist town, if you stay, definitely rent a car to visit other parts and visit the islands like Symi. The house was clean and the air conditioning was great as well as wifi and a washer!! The stairs up to the beds are very steep so be careful if you are not able to climb. The street was a tad noisy but only with mopeds. The family was very helpful and have us maps and a book of Rhodes! I would recommend this cave house.
It is a lovely apartment with real character, and sleeping in the long stone bedroom upstairs felt wonderful. The air conditioning works very well too. It is in an excellent location within the Old Town, and there are nice cafes just around the corner, or a short walk into the main busy part of the old town.
If you have car it can be easily parked outside the apartment, but the first time you arrive you will need to park just outside the Old Town wall, and walk a very short distance to the apartment to get a parking permit from Nikolas, who is very friendly and helpful.
